Sunday Coffee Cake

We spent the weekend with our daughter and she made this great coffee cake for breakfast on Sunday.

The recipe came from one of her co-workers who gave us permission to use it here.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup cooking oil (canola, corn, sunflower)
4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla (see notes)
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 can pie filling of your choice
cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling

How to:
Combine ingredients (except pie filling and cinnamon sugar mix) in the order listed, blend well.

Pour half of the batter into a greased (or spray with non-stick cooking spray) 9 by 13 cake pan.

Sprinkle batter with mixture of cinnamon and sugar.

Cover with pie filling.

Spread remaining batter over the top.

Sprinkle with additional cinnamon and sugar.

Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes (depending on oven, humidity and altitude)

Notes: Because we were using cherry pie filling, we used 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond. If you use apple filling you may want to use a bit more cinnamon.
